CONNECT Via MOBILE BROADBAND

Note:
Mobile Broadband refers to any kind of high speed Internet connection which is provided by an external device such as a 3G USB stick or mobile phone with built-in HSPA/UMTS/GPRS data connection. Some laptops have recently been produced with mobile broadband devices already inside them.

Most mobile broadband devices should be recognised automatically when you connect them to your computer. Ubuntu will prompt you to configure the device.


Instruction:

  1. The New Mobile Broadband Connection wizard will open automatically when you connect the device.

  2. Click Forward and enter your details, including the country where your Mobile Broadband device was issued,
    the network provider and type of connection (for example, Contract or pre-pay)

  3. Give your connection a name and click Apply.

  4. Your connection is now ready to use. To connect, click the network menu in the menu bar and select your new connection.

  5. To disconnect, click the network menu in the menu bar and click Disconnect.

If you are not prompted to configure the device when you connect it,
it may still be recognised by Ubuntu. In such cases you can add the connection manually.

Instruction:

  1. Click the network menu in the menu bar and select Edit Connections.

  2. Switch to the Mobile Broadband tab.

  3. Click Add.

  4. This should open the New Mobile Broadband Connection wizard. Enter your details as described above.

    If you want the launcher to show on all monitors, change Launcher Placement to All Displays.

  4. To change the "position" of a monitor, click on it and drag it to the desired position.

  5. When you are happy with your settings, click Apply and then click Keep This Configuration

STICKY EDGES

A typical problem with dual monitors is that it's easy for the mouse pointer to "slip" to the other monitor when you don't want it to.

Unity's Sticky Edges feature helps with that problem by requiring you to push a little bit harder to move the mouse pointer from one monitor to the other.

You can switch Sticky Edges off if you don't like this feature.

    If you don't ever want the screen to lock itself automatically, switch Lock off.
